About the job:

Full-time

OUR STORY

Quince was started to challenge the existing idea that nice things should cost a lot. Our mission was simple: create an item of equal or greater quality than the leading luxury brands and sell them at a much lower price.


OUR VALUES

EVERYONE SHOULD BE ABLE TO AFFORD NICE THINGS. Quality shouldn’t be a luxury. We’re proud of our mission to bring the world’s highest quality goods to people at affordable prices.


QUALITY IS MORE THAN MATERIALS. True quality is a combination of premium materials and high production standards.


WE FOCUS ON THE ESSENTIALS. From the perfect crewneck sweater to hotel quality sheets, we're all about high quality essentials that bring enjoyment to daily life.


WE’RE INNOVATING TO MAKE UNREAL PRICES A REALITY. Our uniquely developed factory-direct model lets us offer exceptionally high quality goods for much lower prices than our competitors.


ALWAYS A BETTER DEAL. We believe in real price transparency, for both our customers and factory partners. This way, everyone gets a better deal.


FAIR FACTORIES. We are committed to working with factories that meet the global standards for workplace safety and wage fairness.


OUR TEAM AND SUCCESS

Quince is a retail and technology company co-founded by a team that has extensive experience in retail, technology and building early stage companies. You’ll work with a team of world-class talent from Stanford GSB, Wish.com, D.E. Shaw, Stitch Fix, Urban Outfitters, Wayfair, McKinsey, Nike etc. 


THE IDEAL CANDIDATE

The ideal candidate is a self-starter, problem-solver and successful in combining technology and data into best-in-class outcomes. The candidate is energized by solving complex business problems and consistently effective in making high-judgment decisions at rapid pace amidst the frequent ambiguity that comes with charting a course of action with no precedent. Moreover, the ideal candidate is energized by an environment where strategy, innovation and decision-making are intentionally distributed, where candor, speed and data are highly valued and colleagues at all levels hold each other to unusually high standards on behalf of Quince customers.


Quince has pioneered a M2C logistics model that ships single parcel goods to consumer directly from the factory or near the factory.  We would like to launch a new business model that opens our logistics platform so that other companies can also use this model (“QLS or Quince Logistics Services”).  With Quince as the largest anchor customer of this service, we believe we can drive superior economic outcomes for other retailers that transform their supply chain as much as it has for Quince.  Quince will also benefit as increased scale on its network will help reduce prices, improve reliability and increase delivery speed. The GM of Quince Logistics Services will be responsible for developing and executing the business plan underlying Quince Logistics Services. 


The GM will be responsible for the operations, network design, technology, financials and sales of this new business.  The GM will be a full P&L owner.  We have an ambition to drive superior speed and reliability for express international shipping at the lowest market cost.
